Garlic Pepper Grilled Steak

We celebrated the first truly balmy day of the year with a steak on the grill. Excellent!

2 1-lb grass-fed steaks (or equivalent)
1 head garlic, cloves peeled
2 Tbsp olive oil
Lots of freshly ground black pepper

Rinse the steaks, pat dry, and trim if desired.

In a mortar and pestle or mini food processor, mince/mash the garlic very fine (you can also do this with a knife but it's harder to turn it into paste). Add the olive oil and turn it into a paste.

Liberally sprinkle the steaks all over with salt and LOTS of freshly ground black pepper. Then spread the garlic mixture all over.

Grill over high heat for about 4 minutes a side (for medium rare).

Serves about 4.
